It’s being reported that Netflix has given the greenlight to Enola Holmes 2 and that the movie will see Henry Cavill return as Sherlock Holmes.
It seems as though the film will also see Millie Bobby Brown return as Enola Holmes, of course.
What’s not so certain is whether Sam Claflin will be returning as Mycroft Holmes, however, I would expect him also to be returning for the sequel.
This news was first reported by What’s On Netflix and I have since been able to confirm this with my own sources close to Netflix.
The first movie was a huge hit for Netflix and viewers really seemed to love both Brown and Cavill’s performances in the movie.
What I’ve been told is that this sequel will see Brown’s Enola and Cavill’s Sherlock work more closely together.
After having seen the first movie, I think that’s what it lacked.
The films should really be more about Enola and Sherlock working together.
There was an element of that in the first movie, but not enough really.
Enola Holmes 2 is happening over at Netflix
Viewers also really seemed to love Cavill’s take on the iconic detective.
It was very different to all the versions of Sherlock Holmes we’d seen in the past, and I thought it was actually quite refreshing.
That said, Arthur Conan Doyle’s estate did not appreciate the film and actually took Netflix to court over it.
I’m actually not sure how that case ended, but it looks like Netflix is still carrying on with these films.
Interestingly enough, What’s On Netflix is saying that Netflix is casting new cast members for this movie right now.
Henry Cavill will be back as Sherlock Holmes
Therefore, it seems as though we’ll be getting some new characters in this Enola Holmes 2 movie.
They also confirmed that Legacy Entertainment will return as the production company behind the sequel.
